Shell hatches groundbreaking concept car

SHELL has this week unveiled a concept city car which, if it were ever to go into production, could deliver material reductions in energy use in road transport.

The three-seater car is tangible proof of energy efficiency improvements that can be achieved by using cutting-edge technology available today.

The key advance is a process of “co-engineering” — whereby vehicle body, engine design and lubricants are all created together. Independent testing and a life-cycle study shows that Shell’s concept car would deliver a 34 per cent reduction in primary energy use over its entire life cycle when compared to a typical city car available in the UK.

The Shell concept car would use around half the energy required to build and run it than a typical small family car available in the UK and 69 per cent less than that of a typical sports utility vehicle available in the UK.
